Oh yeah... the Missionaries are coming over at 5 pm. What, my love? You invited our friends who are new to the area to dinner? Hmmm. And it's late afternoon? Good thing I threw on an extra large pot of Everything Chili. (It has everything that was lying around in my fridge, with beans and meat.)
Church got out at 3pm, home by 3:38 (ish). SCRAMBLE!!
My wife took over the counters to make a double batch of cornbread. I fine tuned the Chili. The kids cleaned. Well, the kids cleaned like a donkey pulls loads. They do... but they need prodding and can be very stubborn.
In my rush to find additional food for the table, I decided on salad. It is primarily spinach, and I felt like a passion fruit vinaigrette. Here it is:
Passion Fruit Vinaigrette
3 TBL frozen passion fruit juice concentrate, thawed
3 TBL minced shallot (substitute with mix of onion/garlic - more O than G)
4 tsp. Sherry wine vinegar (Or other vinegar, I guess)
1 tsp. Dijon mustard (too much will overpower)
1 tsp. whole coriander seeds, coarsely cracked (sub: 1/2 mint, 1/2 parsley)
3 TBL olive oil
I got the recipe here: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Avocado-and-Mango-Salad-with-Passion-Fruit-Vinaigrette-231721
Nice. Very nice.
Oh shoot! the kids need to clean the guest/kids bathroom. Bye.
